When Wampler released their Pantheon Overdrive, a Marshall Bluesbreaker MK1 type of a pedal, it became an instant hit. The small pedal offered a lot of tone options, which brought Wampler fans to suggest Brian Wampler an improvement to it; Make it a dual channel pedal is what they said. Well, Brian Wampler listened.
At first instance, one might think that the Wampler Pantheon Dual Overdrive Deluxe is simply a pedal consists of two Wampler Pantheon overdrive channels. But actually, both channels are not identical. CH 1 is based on the Marshall Bluesbreaker MK1, while CH 2 has ties to the Analog Man King Of Tone (which also originated in a Bluesbreaker circuit).
The gain options on this pedal are endless, well almost endless. On the left side of the pedal you’ll find two switches for Voice and Gain. Gain will let you switch between lower, mid and higher gain options, while Voice will allow you to select between three clipping options. Then, on the face of the pedal you will see a toggle switch. This one controls the stacking order of the channels. A lot of tone options to choose from. And of course, you can turn each channel on or off, giving you the freedom to switch from soft drive to more drive quickly.
Am important feature of the Wampler Pantheon Dual Overdrive Deluxe is the Presence control. Some guitars are dark sounding, some guitars are bright sounding. The Presence control helps you brighten or darken your tone to your liking, based on your guitar. It affects both channels, and is pretty sensitive so the recommendation is to start from low presence and go up until you hit the sweet spot.
